This morning I was in the cafeteria at work, and the guy in front of me ordered “egg whites and bacon”. Now perhaps it’s just me, but that struck me as pretty funny. I see it as along the same lines as a Diet Coke and a Snickers bar. You see, the whole point about dietary modifications (whether for health, allergies, or whatever), is that in order for it to work, you need to be consistent. Otherwise, it’s clearly just a mental game, and not really anything useful.
People will order the mega-bucket of popcorn with EXTRA butter and salt slathered all over it in multiple layers as the counter jock fills the bathtub sized container, and then to defuse the badness, they order a Diet Pepsi. I always find it hard not to bust up laughing. I mean really, if you are going to go for junk, then DO it – why screw around? And give me a steak (rare) on the side please.
